From hip-hop to country to The Boss, here are my songs of the year. If you’re looking for something to keep you company on a long drive or help you turn up a workout, I hope there’s a track or two in here that does the trick. pic.twitter.com/mQ2VssyDwt— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 30, 2019
Meanwhile, Prateek Kuhad could not believe that his song made it to the former President's profound playlist. He mentioned in a Twitter feed that he is in absolute awe. He also thanked Barack Obama in his Tweet for making this the highlight for him in 2019.
This just happened and I don’t think I’ll sleep tonight. Totally flipping out. I have no idea how cold/mess even reached him but thank you @barackobama, thank you universe 🙂 I didn’t think 2019 could’ve gotten better, but damn was I wrong. What an honour. https://t.co/zwaJFIQLmC— Prateek Kuhad (@prateekkuhad) December 30, 2019
